On their last album, Fantasies, Metric became the first act in history to achieve their first ever Top 20 hit on U.S. commercial radio without the backing of a traditional label; they have also sold out arenas and headlined festivals; picked up JUNO Awards for “Alternative Album of the Year” and “Band of the Year”; had a hand in scoring films for everyone from Edgar Wright to David Cronenberg, and wrote the theme song for the Grammy nominated and Academy Award shortlisted Twilight: Eclipse soundtrack with composer Howard Shore. They performed “Gimme Sympathy” at a private event for the Queen of England.
